NEW YORK (AP) - Consolidated Edison and the union representing its employees are giving it another try. Labor talks resumed Thursday.
Meanwhile, a noisy union protest continued near Union Square in Manhattan.
The utility announced 5 percent voltage reductions in some Brooklyn neighborhoods. It said crews were making repairs despite the heat wave.
The good news: Residents can still use their air conditioning and other appliances.
The negotiations failed last weekend. On Thursday, the company put out a full page ad blasting the union.
Con Edison has been replacing union workers in the field with managers.
